To those who have not read of the previous doings of these young lads we would say that our heroes were three noble boys from across the sea.

'The Beulah Show' was the first TV series to feature an African American woman in the lead role. This episode is called "The Waltz". The show starred Hattie McDaniel. It's commonly believed that most episodes of this show were destroyed. The show was controversial for claims of "racial stereotyping", though to be honest, I could think of plenty of shows that did the same thing years later without complaint.

There this short series ended. Prior to it's network run, some episodes of Steve Randall were seen locally under the title of Hollywood Offbeat. Starring: Melvyn...
